President's Corner

Greetings! Remember the deadline for film & videos, new media, scripts and workshops is 11:59 pm on March 1, 2015. In order to submit a proposal or project, you must be a current member of UFVA. Submissions can address the conference theme of Media with Impact, but are not required to do so. This conference will be a great venue to showcase finished work as well as getting a response to works in progress. Please meet the deadline and join us at American University.

I am happy to announce that our papers and panels submissions for this years’ conference are at all time high. Thank you for following our new procedure of paying your membership dues before your submission. This will allow you to have uninterrupted access to the website and the journal, and continue to keep our membership robust and growing.

For our members interested in all aspects of documentary, I am happy to report that we are collaborating with Cilect North America to provide a one-day pre-conference add on. This will be a unique opportunity for UFVA members to have a different pre-conference experience. Michael Kowalski, Associate Dean of the Dodge College of Film and Media Arts at Chapman University, will host this pre-conference event in D.C. The day will feature a documentary keynote speaker, exciting professional and academic panels, and distributors of documentary content from the D.C. area...

President's Corner

July 1, 2014

And here we are, about one month away from our conference in Montana. I look forward to seeing many of you there. It promises to be a great meeting.

In the meantime, our annual elections are upon us. This year we have people, both new and old Board members, running for a variety of offices. I like the idea of new blood and the incoming president – Francisco Menendez, from UNLV – will need the same amount of help that I have been getting from the board, perhaps even more because there will be a lot of initiatives that have only begun to get going that will need your help.
